Tying up the Blanket Project
Earlier this fall, OSL participated in Project Warm-Up, which provides fleece tie blankets to hundreds of Sioux Falls students who face homelessness and other life stresses; families who receive a home through Habitat for Humanity; and people who have lost a home through tragedy or natural disaster. OSL members contributed fleece from September 1 through October 2, and on October 12 hosted a Blanket Tying Party to assemble the blankets. In the end, OSL members of all ages donated, cut, tied, and delivered 111 blankets to bless and comfort our neighbors. Thank you for your generosity!
